Yep, any aquarium safe silicone will work. Be sure to use something to brace each panel until the silicone is fully cured.

They put this on the tube as a disclaimer to avoid lawsuits if the silicone fails. GE silicone is what most people use just be sure it's 100% silicone and it is not the mold inhibitor stuff. I believe the stuff you need is called windows and doors.
